Day-out from 9.30am to 6.00pm
Departure from your Parisian residence with our private chauffeur
Because harmony increases the pleasure of the senses, the composition of a table is a stage play where every detail plays its part to create the magic.
Here we go centre stage to take the role traditionally played by the Mistress of the House!
The day is an exploration of the Art of the Table, the quintessence of French entertaining. In the morning you can live a unique workshop experience at the centre of one of France’s most beautiful high-end silverware houses. This is followed by lunch, in an equally sumptuous and magical setting, dedicated to glass crystal. In the afternoon, depending on your desires, we can either discover the ceramic museum, the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, or visit the finest of the Parisian shops in our address book devoted to the Art of the Table.
Morning: Your private chauffeur will pick you up from your Parisian residence and take you to Rue Royale in the 8th district. Passages Secrets has created a workshop unique to Paris, the meeting point of style and design. Through our partnership with Christofle we will introduce you, not just to the art of setting a table, but to its mise-en-scène. Receiving around a table is a very French tradition, practiced and rediscovered with each event. Whether it be social, family or professional, each element of decoration, tableware and lights has its role to play.
Lunch: A pure moment of creative gourmet cuisine in a Parisian mansion. We will transport you into the history of Baccarat, one of the most stunning Houses of French crystal. The authentic setting is a marvel of the nineteenth century architecture and the decor is straight out of the tales of a Thousand and One Nights.
Afternoon: According to your desires, the tour can take one of two directions:
Either a visit to the Sèvres National Ceramics Museum: An international collection of nearly 50 000 works of art from every country and period, including contemporary and featuring the very latest of the Manufacture de Sèvres’ creations.
Or an afternoon shopping for Table Art with our Ambassadress. You will be guided to our favourite addresses for silverware, porcelain, glassware, tablecloths and decoration. In order to create your own magical and creative atmospheres, you will be able to find and buy different and varied accessories to embellish and bring soul to your table.
